The dishes served each afternoon will vary, but you can expect a selection of food ranging from niche regional specialties to all-time Spanish classics.Wolf down dishes like sizzling gambas (prawns), succulent oxtail, locally cured hams and refreshing gazpacho – a chilled soup made from the ripest of tomatoes. Treat your taste buds with bacalao – a delicately dried and salted cod (tasting infinitely better than it sounds) – and devour Spanish favorites like paella. All dishes are complemented with local wine, sherry and crisp Spanish beer like Cruzcampo and San Miguel.Complete your tapas circuit of Seville at two more bars, continuing your afternoon of camaraderie and fine food. Your tour finishes at the third bar, leaving you perfectly placed to carry on eating your way around Seville should you wish.
